Hi - This is a fairly typical diagnosis of breast cancer. Please read our FAQS for this type of cancer. Statistically speaking - and this is ONLY statistics, everyone is different - the 5-year survival rate for American women with this diagnosis is about 84%, so greater than 8 of 10 women are still alive 5 years after diagnosis. I hope she's in a position to get good care, because good care is available, as evidenced by the survival rates. Best of luck to both of you - PJH
